The numbers are growing rapidly: According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority, among 1.8 million newly registered cars in Germany there were already 421,262 electric drives (including plug-in hybrids and fuel cells) – almost every fourth new car.

With success, however, the pressure on the charging infrastructure also increases. The numbers are climbing here too – for October 2021, the Federal Network Agency reports 41,239 public normal and 6,845 fast charging points in Germany.

In 2021 alone, 4,677 of these were added up to 22 kW and 814 with more than 22 kW charging power. Nevertheless, the ratio of e-cars to charging points is growing – there are currently around 17 electric vehicles per charging point, and the target is ten.

The result: In city centers, it is a matter of luck to get a free loading space. And frequent e-drivers report that they have to wait more and more often to be charged on the autobahn, too.

Important: information and charging convenience

This means that comfort aspects such as lighting, roofing and wellness offers could take a back seat during the charging time – better an uncomfortable charging point than none at all. But on the one hand, in view of the development described, advance information such as operational readiness and availability are becoming increasingly important.

On the other hand, the further acceptance of electromobility also depends on the charging experience. Both are therefore important criteria in what is now our third charging network test. Together with our test partner umlaut, we focused again on the long-distance-relevant charging locations with “High Power Charging” (HPC).

And the numbers are increasing here too: In addition to the DACH region, we are now also examining the Benelux countries; our test drivers have never examined so many e-mobility providers (EMPs) and charge point operators (CPOs).

Zitat: Hakan Ekmen

“Growing demand puts the charging infrastructure under load. Congratulations to EnBW, Ionity and Fastned for getting along best in the countries tested. To EnBW also to victory as EMP.”
